Yep - that's right - I sold one of the pieces (the one below) I made for the No-Show! SO excited that despite the stinko situation, I was true to myself and true to the beautiful pieces that I make.
The other thing I'm reminded of is that OTHER PEOPLE LIKE MY STUFF! Ok, some of you are like 'Duh! That's why you're selling, right?' - well kinda - but the truth is - I sell so I can feed my beading habit. =) The whole process just reminded how important it is to remember that this woman (No-Show) liked my jewelry that I had made just for fun - not because I was trying to make something specifically for a wedding. It also reminded me of how fragile my feelings toward my work can be so easily be broken.
I realized that I pour so much of ME into each piece I make. Every time I make something - a piece of me goes with it. That's either really COOL to think or really CREEPY. =)
